class information

Getting started in woodworking can feel intimidating, but it shouldn’t be! LA Woodshop’s Introduction to Woodworking class will teach you everything you need to know to start your journey into woodworking and furniture making.

Over the course of one day, you’ll learn the basis for every woodworking project going forward: milling. We’ll guide you through the process of taking a rough piece of lumber, straight from the lumberyard, to a beautiful finished project that you can take home and proudly display.

You’ll come away having learned to safely use the table saw, jointer, planer, bandsaw, drill press, and other common tools found in every professional woodshop.

Notes from the Shop

We’ve got you covered for all materials and safety equipment. Please wear comfortable clothes. Avoid wearing baggy clothes and open-toe shoes. Additionally, tie back long hair and don’t wear dangly jewelry.
